This site is intended to provide information on the NIE whose mission is "to improve the scientific basis for making decisions on environmental issues." The site includes information on the origin of the NIE, its accomplishments, and its current activities. Also included are sections on membership, fund-raising, and financial and legislative sponsors. The highlight of the site, however, is the National Library of the Environment (discussed in the October 18, 1996 issue of the Scout Report
), a repository of over 100 Congressional Research Service reports. The ultimate goal of the NIE is to increase funding for environmental and policy research through the creation of a federally funded research granting agency akin to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
